ESPN's Clayton thinks SF will be 3rd in NFC West

rather be an underdog than that "sleeper team" we are alot
I understand that we aren't Super Bowl contenders right now. I understand that we may still be a 7-9 or 8-8 team. But, how can anyone see the Seahawks go 4-12 and us go 7-9 and they surpass us by at least 4 or 5 games?

They may have had a better offseason, but it still doesn't make sense. I don't see it. And, a healthy Hasselbeck? I'll believe it when I see it.


What a geekferd. He should be teaching chemistry, not making NFL predictions. I don't know why people listen to this garbage. 9 out of 10 times these so-called analysts are wrong anyways.

He's taking safe bet with the Tards b/c they won the west last season. He's putting Seattle 2nd b/c:

Clayton has been a talk show host on KJR Radio, in Seattle, Wash., since 1990. He was the NFL and Seattle Seahawks beat writer for the Tacoma News Tribune since 1986 through 1998.

Opinions are like a**holes and Clayton is a big hole with irrelevant opinions.

Still, Smith does have a shot because he's still young and has plenty of talent. [b]The Seahawks clearly had a better offseason than the 49ers, and the Cardinals are a better team right now as long as Kurt Warner stays healthy. The return of Matt Hasselbeck should allow the Seahawks' offense to improve by five to six points a game. It would take a great season from Michael Crabtree to cause such a jump in the 49ers' offense. I'd say going in that the 49ers are third in the NFC West and not ready to be a winning team -- yet.[/b] John Clayton, a recipient of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's McCann Award for distinguished reporting, is a senior writer for ESPN.com. WOW Im alittle suprised tha

When I was at home checking my 49er schedule on

Week 1 49ers vs cardinals WIN the only way we"ll lose that game if we don't presure kurt warner but if we come out with a strong pass rush we should get the big W

Week 2 seahawks vs 49ers WIN I still think seahawks a dangerous team but guess what no mike holmgrem and let's just hope coach mora don't know how to coach

Week 3 49ers vs vikings WIN I feel that we got tekeo spikes and p willis can shut adrian peterson down let's just hope none of them don't get hurt

They just don't like us 9ers
It takes two sides of the ball for a team to win, and Seattle has no defense...

Not too far-fetched really. In all honesty, I see there being a tie between the 2nd and 3rd teams in the NFC West.

Our offensive success will greatly be attributed to three main things which are still question marks (not in order):

1. The utilization of Vernon Davis in the passing game.
2. The health of the Offensive Line.
3. The growth, progress, and performance of our young receivers in Hill, Morgan, and Crabtree.

If we get all that, we'll be much more explosive than many expect. But I think we're a 9-win team right now.

Actually I'd say:

2 should be #1
3 should be #2
1 should be #3

A healthy OL means the running game is credible and pass protection is enough to get Bruce and who ever steps up the ball for 3rd down conversions. VD only becomes a threat if the WRs stretch the field enough to be a threat to open the seam routes, but that can only happen if the QB has time to throw the ball. In the case of both of these QBs, neither has proven even when a receiver gets behind a defense they can deliver it with accuracy consistently to the deep open man. So pass-protection is key.

Others have said it and I'll echo -

As the health of the OL goes, so goes the season. And clearly of the teams in our division, our OL is currently 3rd best only probably better than the Rams until proven otherwise.


Great post.....we're taking a HUGE gamble in M.Smith, he may turn out to be great or Jonas Jennings I don't know. If he goes down we're in huge trouble but I think we have the depth to get by with injuries at C (Wallace plus Baas and Wragge can play there) G behind Baas, Rachel we have Wraage and Snyder who can do ok.
Week 1 49ers vs cardinals LOSS
cards home opener they will be fired up , i doubt we in this one but i expect a CLOSE score .

Week 2 seahawks vs 49ers WIN
yea we rebound from zona loss and its our home opener so no way in hell we lose here.

Week 3 49ers vs vikings Loss
tough team on the road, but this can very easily be a win too this one im thinking most conservatively, but im assuming a close loss.

Week 4 rams vs 49ers WIN
playing the rams.... enough said

Week 5 falcons vs 49ers WIN
close game once again , i think we'll barley squeak it out

Week 6 bye week so going into the bye im predicting a 3-2 record

Week 7 49ers vs Texians LOST
this one tough to call cause we will have 2 weeks to prepare for this team but i feel we could let down here with a close loss to a good team

Week 8 49ers vs colts LOST
im predicting this will be our first blowout and prolly only blowout loss this year.

Week 9 titans LOSS
very good titans team

Week 10 bears. vs 49ers WIN
i know they got jay cutler but our defense gives him problems and we will rebound after losing 3 at home. remember we took jay cutler's broncos out of playoffs few years back

Week 11 49ers vs packers WIN
packers are overated and i think well win a close game here cause it is at lambo

Week 12 jaguars vs 49ers LOSS
jags got a very good Oline and potent running attack i think they barley squeak by

Week 13 49ers vs seahawks LOSS
seahawks on the road against 12th man, with hasslebeck and TJ lookin for payback.

Week 14 cardinals v s 49ers WIN
close one we barley win out MNF at home.

Week 15 49er vs eagles LOSS
eagles are no joke, and they always seem to kill us . close game im thinking

Week 16 lions vs 49ers WIN

lions suck still

Week 17 49ers vs rams Win
lambs suck ok.


also i predicted we be 8-8 before and i didnt count these wins up at all while doin each breakdown and still came up with 8-8. so yeah think this will be our record and not a bad one i say for an improving team.
